Depends on how concerned you are about revealing private data.
Is being located to within specific town fine? Then systematic mapping of town should preserve your location within it (though beware of more detailed mapping nearby your home or mapping everywhere but not around your home and so on).
Or maybe you are fine even with fairly detailed location of pseudonymous account within a town/city?
Maybe map only when travelling and not around you?
In some areas of world mapping solely from aerial is welcome (where data quality is really low) but you mentioned interest in a specifically local area.
In my case I decided to not care about it: revealing where I am reveals some data, but I am fine with it.
Limited release of private info, while being aware of it is by definition not a doxxing (and may be good or bad idea).
You could use OSM data to guess where I live, but for example
(1) for now I am renting for limited time, I will live elsewhere within year or two
(2) OSM data from mapping can be used to limit my location to area where about 2000 people live. maybe more (photo from File:Nowa Huta - Plac Centralny z lotu ptaka.jpg - Wikimedia Commons CC-BY-SA-4.0 by Fly4pix, I cropped it)
And anyway if someone would be interested in meeting I would be happy to answer OSM message from them to talk about OSM.
note that mapping houses from aerials and shops or other data from survey in your area will not prevent much
That depends on safety situation: if for someone release of rough location would cause real risks (they are hunted by KGB or victim of dangerous stalker or something) then I would sadly recommend against OSM mapping based on surveys.
For someone in regular situation leaking of rough location where they live seems to me not worse than revealing where I roughly live by going shopping. Or by receiving deliveries*. Or by using phone. Though danger depends on specifics (where info is leaked - to everyone immediately in case of OSM - or how detailed, in case of OSM data it is only rough data unless someone has edit comments like “adding my home where I live”).
*note that it not being public outright changes less than expected, all databases should be assumed to leak sooner or later: you signed up for delivery and gave your address? This data will leak at some point or leaked already. You filled some other form that requested your address? It is sold already or will be sold soon and available to anyone to buy. Or maybe government/semi-government database leaked with details on millions of people in one go anyway.
See List of data breaches - Wikipedia for partial list of publicly known ones.
How concerned you should be depends on various factors (and if you have good reasons to be concerned then posting them on internet is likely not a good idea either)
I am editing with StreetComplete, without enabling manual uploads, which effectively broadcasts my current position but I live in place safe enough with no unusual risks so that poses no problems.
Just trace them in separate edits, not in one edit that has both China and Jamaica.
